Talent Development

Developing People. Building Brown.

Talent Development is a conduit of knowledge, information, and services. We facilitate learning and assist staff in maximizing job performance.  Our offerings are designed to help staff:

  1. Prepare themselves to assume new or different responsibilities
  2. Develop the knowledge, skills, and competencies to perform effectively in their current position
  3. Forge internal and external partnerships to improve organizational effectiveness

Before enrolling in any instructor-led offerings, kindly review the university's Professional Development Policy. Explore learning opportunities by visiting Workday Learning.

If you have a specific professional development need that we can assist with, please select the training request button on the right-hand side of this webpage. Additionally, peruse our sidebar for a comprehensive list of upcoming instructor-led or self-directed offerings!
